How to Bungee Cord Your Trash Can

Are you tired of your trash cans blowing over in the wind or being knocked over by animals? One simple solution is to bungee cord your trash cans to something sturdy, such as a fence or a tree. Not only will this keep your trash cans in place, it will also prevent litter from getting scattered around your yard.

Here's how to bungee cord a trash can:

  1. Gather your materials. You will need bungee cords (also known as bungee ropes or elastic cords), a trash can, and something sturdy to attach the trash can to (such as a fence or tree).

  2. Place the trash can in the desired location. Make sure that it is close enough to the fence or tree so that you can reach the bungee cords to attach them.

  3. Stretch out the bungee cords. You will need two bungee cords per trash can - one for the front and one for the back. Hook one end of each bungee cord onto the handle of the trash can.

  4. Attach the other end of the bungee cords to the fence or tree. Make sure that the bungee cords are taut, but not so tight that they will damage the trash can or the fence/tree.

  5. Test the bungee cords to make sure that the trash can is secure. Try gently pulling on the trash can to make sure that it does not budge.

And that's it! You've successfully bungee corded your trash can to a fence or tree. This simple trick will keep your trash cans in place and prevent litter from being scattered around your yard. Plus, it's a quick and easy project that anyone can do.
